Japanese is offered at the 1st-4th year levels including graduate study at IU through the Japanese Language Program. Students who have completed the two-year language requirement should be able to function in daily situations in Japan. By the end of the third year (required for majors), students will be able to start to handle authentic materials. By the end of the fourth year, students are expected to have confidence when handling any modern materials. There are several clubs including a weekly conversation club. Additional resources can be found through East Asian Languages & Cultures and the East Asian Studies Center.
